Allardyce bemoans the quality of chips in Slovakia

SAM Allardyce has complained to the FA about the lack of chip barms in Slovakia.

Despite winning in the final seconds with an Adam Lallana goal, described as a rarer sight than a successful Jordan Henderson pass, the England manager fears for the catering standards for the rest of the qualifying campaign.

Allardyce said: “We’ll be fine at Wembley because I can bring my air fryer and a bag of frozen McCain’s from home, but I went on holiday to Malta back in 1982 and the grub was rotten.

“I ended up getting kicked out of the hotel for barricading myself in the kitchen and making boiled egg sandwiches. I doubt I’ll be able to do that this time.”

He added: “The only decent trip we’ll have this campaign is to Scotland. There’s a country that has the proper respect for a deep fat fryer.”
